for the bride to be: amanda
We have had SO many brides ask us where to buy the things they see in our pictures....
Details truly make your day 100x prettier, so we're happy to help source items that will fit your day!
I hope this helps! I'm just such a visual person - so here are some options for details and ways to make your wedding EPIC.
You can click on the image to find the source to most of them! :)
Our favourite kinds of invitations to photograph - are neutral, beautiful with detailing. PRO TIP: Your "real" invitation can be one simple basic invite that you mail out, as you know your guests may discard of this. ** THEN have your calligrapher or wedding invitation designer make you ONE full invitation suite for us to photograph! Way less expensive! (Plume Calligraphy does this - our favourite!)
WHERE TO BUY bride's
I would highly recommend intentionally wearing a cute "getting ready" outfit as we'll be taking lots of pictures in the morning!
Much better than a t-shirt or regular pj's! Rompers, wraps, and robes are perfect! Here are some recommendations:
- Lace Romper from Show Me Your Mumu
- Bohemian Romper
- Mute Colours Romper
- Pale Blue Romper
- Pink Silk Kimono
- Dusty Rose Romper
- Pretty Plum Sugar Robes & Rompers
- Etsy Blush Robe
OUR ABSOLUTE FAVOURITES - ALL FROM BHLDN:
- Botanic Garden Robe
- Candlelight Robe
- Midsummer Night Robe
- Jolie Robe
- Violetta Robe
- Chantilly Lingerie Set
(we love shooting some delicate bridal portraits and they make a great surprise for your hubby later!)
Where to purchase wedding details:

GROOM's items or gift ideas:
- Mens Vintage watches:

If you need more suggestions, let me know! Thank you for taking it seriously and knowing the details are worthwhile -
it's literally ALL in the details when it comes to our photos! The more textures, items, trays - the better!
If you guys feel like a trip to vintage or thrift shops - sometimes there are cheap great trays, decanters and coup glasses!
I really hope this all helps! xoxo Richelle
Here are some ideas based on your middle part!
My favourite options are #1 and #4 but I love them all! You can always sweep your hair up for the evening if you really want it down for the Ceremony!
1. Down: with chic part
You can have waves or sleek hair but it adds a "finished" look by having your hair away from your face!
3. Up: Low Bun with Face Framing Bangs
Because of your dress, I would say not messy - keep it a chic bun but with soft piece around your face
2. Down: with face framing "bangs"
With curls going away from face - you would need extensions for this for that "full" look, I think!
4. Up: Chic Pony or Bun
Super different and not done nearly enough! It's romantic and would showcase your neckline.
WHERE TO BUY the BEST BRIDESMAID DRESSES
Here are examples of mixed Bridesmaids Dresses in the same "palette" - our favourite!
Check out our colour combinations here: Richelle Hunter Photography | Mixed Bridesmaids Dresses Inspiration Board
- Lulu's has tons of variety
- Missguided is a great option with affordable prices
- Aidan Mattox is an awesome brand! You can find his gowns and lots more at Nordstrom.
- Jenny Yoo of course is always wonderful
- Show Me Your Mumu has gorgeous and very flattering, flowy styles
I would highly recommend different textures for your girls - try beading or soft print on some girls...and add simple, soft colours on others!
Long sleeve and off-the-shoulder are also an amazing addition.
ONLINE: LULU'S, asos & BHLDN
These come in other colours too!
I have more suggestions and websites if you'd like them!! xoxo! Richelle
